Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling 2021 has been cancelled

The annual Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling event at Cooper’s Hill has been cancelled for 2021.

The organisers of the annual Gloucestershire Cheese Roll have announced that the 2021 event has been cancelled for the second year in a row.

The traditional event was due to take place at Cooper’s Hill in Brockworth on the May bank holiday on Monday 31 May 2021, but due to government guidelines surrounding Coronavirus, organisers have said it will not be able to take place.

It is the second year that the popular Gloucestershire Cheese Roll can’t go ahead as planned, after the event was also cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic.

Each year, the event attracts thousands of visitors and even saw Netflix attend in 2019 to film the series We are the Champions.

Organisers have said that as it is not possible to stop spectators from attending, the event will not be able to go ahead under the current restrictions.

The event will hopefully return in all its glory in 2022.
